Home Movies “Elvis” Getting Huge Oscar Push This Sunday with Free Showings in 10...

Warner Bros. is giving Baz Luhrmann’s “Elvis” the biggest Oscar push ever because, frankly, this is a wide open race for Best Picture.

On Sunday, which would have been Elvis Presley’s 87th birthday, so the studio is having free showings all over the country of the “Elvis” movie. There are ten shows in each of 10 cities, at 5pm including New York, Los Angeles, Kansas City, Chicago, Dallas, Toronto and Vancouver.

All above screenings will take place at 5:00 PM local time except Los Angeles, which begins at 4:00 PM PST.

Memphis, home to Presley’s beloved Graceland, will also host an afternoon screening at 2:00 p.m. in the estate’s Guest House Theater for fans in town for Elvis’s Birthday Celebration. Tickets will be available here.

There’s also a 30 minute special coming to HBO Max on Sunday called “Just a Boy from Tupelo.” Warner’s is also partnering with Graceland for a bunch of events at our national monument to Mr. Swivel Hips.

Look for a possible surprise next week as “Elvis” could turn out to be winner at the Golden Globes. It isn’t controversial, it’s well made and because Tom Cruise has sort of 86d “Maverick” from the Globes and ditto Brendan Fraser with “The Whale,” “Elvis” could be the solution. Austin Butler has picked up steam, too, for Best Actor.

Warner’s is also weighing on Sunday with a big pre-Globes party for “Elvis.” Suspicious minds at work here…
